Well, it's not listed in the lib/goffice/*.c files, so it's probably

Hmm.  IIRC, a lot of the numeric/math deps are due to recent gnumeric
code in coordination with the R project ... importing their
well-tested/&c. math routines.  It's unclear if GOG has a real
dependency on them, and thus on ieee754.h.  More digging required.

GSF may be able to be a non-dependency; there are GSF-type-definition
macros all over the place, but very little actual usage.   Of course,
gnumeric-CVS actually has deps on libgsf-1.10.0, so the story may be
even worse.

Yes it is.  Good.

Hmm.  This could be quite unfortunate, if the more recent version is
because of deps for printing graphs; again: more digging required.

Thanks for the info.

Are we cl

As per our discussion on IRC earlier, I'm going to commit this effort
this evening to a sub-branch of the gnucash-gnome2-dev branch called
'g2-gog-integ'; the branch and a branch-point tag called
'g2-gog-integ-bp' exist of about 10 minutes ago.
